There are 35 individual picnic tables, placed throughout the park that blend nicely with the natural surroundings. Grills are available at each site, and restrooms and group pavilions are also available.
The park has four shelters that can accommodate from 40 to 120 people. All shelters have grills, nearby
bathroom facilities, picnic tables and electric outlets. Reservations are required and should be made well

bathhouse and vending machines.
It is open from early summer through Labor Day. Lifeguards are on duty during regular swimming hours. All park public pools will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, except Holiday weeks. Please call the park for those schedules. Camping guests will pay half price for admission to the pool.
